This beautiful 50K route, has about 5000ft of elevation, made up of quiet back roads, peaceful trail, lush forestry, colourful meadows and fields, showcasing Shropshire's true beauty.

You will weave your way around sections of the Shropshire Way, Offa's Dyke path and the historic Kerry Ridgeway, taking in some of the best views Shropshire has to offer.  Single track, fields, and off grid footpaths await you, as you embark on what will feel like a real adventure.

You can find the route here:

The route will be fully waymarked and marsdhalled, and there will be three aid stations along the way at mile 9, 15 and 24, stocked with water, coke and lots of sweet and savoury goodies to keep you fuelled and moving forward.
